ATDC Presents SBIR/STTR Tales from the Trenches

Post placeholder image

Four seasoned SBIR/STTR recipients will relay their experiences in obtaining SBIR/STTR funding.  On October 21st, the ATDC Brown Bag Panel Discussion will allow you to glean from their knowledge.

Hearing about the SBIR or STTR award process is one thing, but hearing from someone who actually went through the process (and was successful), is even more beneficial. SBIR/STTR Awards can provide your company with up to $850K to conduct research. Why not learn how others have done it and reap valuable knowledge from their experiences? Come hear them relay how they did it, problems they had, and things they wish they had known. Don’t forget to bring your questions too!


  • Karol Hatzilias is the President, ShapeStart Measurement Systems, Inc.  Phase 1 and 2 SBIR grant from the Navy.
  • Nikil Jayant is a Chaired Professor in the School of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Georgia Tech, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, and Co-Founder of  VQLink. Phase 1 and 2 SBIR grants from NSF.
  • Ron Garmon is CEO of VueLogic.  VuLogic has received Phase 1 and 2 NSF SBIR funding.
  • Thanh Doan is Vice President of Operations at Vivonetics.  SBIR and STTR awards from NIH.

Please note: This is a FREE event (for ATDC Members only), therefore it is a TRUE Brown Bag – meaning, bring your own lunch. If you forget to pack one before you walk out of the house, there are plenty of great restaurants in Tech Square to patron just before you enter this program.
